Dani Olmo is open to a move to Tottenham Hotspur

Olmo has confirmed in an interview with L’Esportiu (h/t Metro) that it would be best for him to leave Zagreb if a suitable offer comes in.
“If there is an understanding between the clubs, I think the best thing for everyone is to leave Zagreb now.”
The youngster has been in good form this season with 8 goals and 7 assists in 22 games. His performances have seen him win the awards for best player and best young player in the Croatian First Division.
Although he primarily plays as a central attacking midfielder, Olmo is also capable of playing on either flank and also as a forward if necessary. His versatility will be a huge addition to a Spurs side lacking dynamism and at times inspiration.
With Eriksen looking likely to leave, Olmo will not only be an excellent replacement but will also secure a key position in the Spurs squad for potentially the decade.
Barcelona and Chelsea are also interested in securing the player’s signature. Olmo’s contract with Zagreb runs out in 2021 and the player is likely to move sooner rather than later.
